Fiawna Forté is a propelling force of musical nature that blends the traditions of rock and roll, blues and indie sensibilities with everything else that crosses her path. Running (barefoot) ahead of this mixed bag of labels, Forté has kept listeners guessing since her full band’s live debut in May 2008. Widely known for her furious voice and roaring presence on stage, Forte’s keen sense for melody and songwriting never suffer amongst the high energy and volume of the band. Her visual femininity only adds to the mystique as the strength of Forté, her song, her soul and her band becomes contagious to the divers and expanding audience.
Coming out of Tulsa, Forte has performed at a variety of festivals, including SXSW (2010, 2011, 2012). Her song “I’d Rather Die” appears in the independent film Barking Water, directed by Sterlin Harjo.
Forté’s full band debut album, Transitus, was released in May 2010.
